of land use in san francisco as related to sharp part. -- sharp park. it allows policy makers to review a partnership to compare against other options. as the city continues future land use at sharp park, it is imperative that we know what we are investing in for both the short term and the long term. it is also imperative that we have options to review, including a popular and potentially problem-solving option of a real purpose sharp park in partnership with the national parks service. this remedy is the flaw in the decisionmaking process for land use at the park for ensuring that the board has the complete picture to review the option. note the option, not the mandate, to pursue a partnership with the national park service. the ordinance ensures that before we commit to a long-term plan to invest hundreds of thousands or tens of millions of dollars into we know what options exist to best address the concerns of the residents, such as recreation supply and public access, and strategic financial investments. this ordinance does not mandate a particular land use outcome. in fact, rather
